Here is the absolute fucking pinnacle of sick, stupid slasher cinema. Pieces is a non-stop car crash of over-the-top fake gore, surreal foreign dubbing, fever dream logic, slumming American TV actors (husband and wife team Christopher and Lynda Day George as the detective and the tennis pro/undercover cop) and unrelenting bad taste. Is director Juan Piquer Simon fucking with us or is everything that's great about this movie a complete mistake? If you can handle the abundant but unconvincing violence, this 1983 film might be the weirdest thing you've ever seen. Made by Spaniards.
